5.2 Pre-Construction Activities

Before work permitted under a Street Improvement Permit can begin, the Permittee must submit pre-construction materials for review and approval.  The Pre-Construction materials may include:

  • Construction Contact Form – This form identifies the billing party and general contractor for the construction phase of the project
  • Construction Schedule – Provides the sequencing and duration of the work in the right-of-way. 
  • Request for Approval of Material Sources (RAMS) Form and Submittals – This form indentifies all materials to be placed in the right-of-way, and provides specific information on the materials including mix designs, material certifications, catalog cuts, and material samples.
  • Notice of Construction in the Public Right-of-Way – This is the notification required to be distributed to businesses and residents potentially affected by the upcoming construction.  Additional information on notifications relative to contractor activities can be found in Seattle Standard Specification 1-07.28 Notifications Relative To Contractor’s Activities.
  • Proof of Insurance – Shows that the Permittee or General Contractor has sufficient insurance and names the City of Seattle as an additional insured.
  • Traffic Control Plan – Identifies temporary traffic revisions required during construction.

The assigned SIP project manager will identify the specific pre-construction materials that will need to be submitted for review and approval based on the location and scope of work at the time of permit issuance.
Once all of the pre-construction materials have been reviewed and approved, a pre-construction meeting will be held either at the project site or at SDOT offices, depending on the size and scope of the project, to review the contractor or subcontractor schedules and confirm other construction-related information.

Refer to CAM 2216 for more information regarding the pre-construction process.
